Happy Holidays Giveaway for Facing The Atlantic : Transform your holiday presents into a donation and win a prize


Most of us will be spending the Holidays warm and cozy in the company of our loved ones. Our rowers Bertie and James however will be spending these days in a rowboat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. In their honor we would like to end 2011 with a Giveaway Fundraiser blast.
Do you get completely stressed out every year trying to come up with what Holiday presents to get for your loved ones? Not looking forward to last minute shopping in overcrowded shops or online shopping with disappointing results? We have the perfect solution for you! Instead of a present for you husband, sister, friend, etc make a donation in their name to Facing The Atlantic.

Make a donation of any amount to Facing The Atlantic in name of your loved one and download a donation certificate that you can personalize with his/her name and a personal message. You can print it and wrap it up or send it by email to your family and friends who don’t live near.

But that is not all…….. We have collected some wonderful Holiday presents, which were kindly donated, that we will be giving away randomly to a number of lucky participants.

Auction of photos signed by Stephen Moyer & Anna Paquin for a cure starts today

A little reminder that the auction to benefit The International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement and the Spondylitis Association of America starts today.

In 2009 I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).
AS is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine. It causes inflammation of the vertebrae that leads to severe, chronic pain and can lead to deformation of the spine.

Currently, there is no known cure for AS, but there are treatments and medications available to reduce symptoms and manage the pain.

I donated 2 photos signed by Stephen and Anna. This auction works the same as always, only the website where you place your bid is different and you’ll pay directly to the non-profit. Lynn has the photos in her Los Angeles home and will send them to the auction winner.

Please visit the auction listing here:



For more information about AS please visit:

Thank you.
